We have an Intex Easy set pool 15'x42"(this is the inexpensive blue pool with the blow up top ring)... water capacity of 3250g. Just set it up yesterday and started filling. We are having to fill it over 3 days as we have a well and don't want to cause any damage or run dry.
The BBB method sounds great...I will go tomorrow and but my supplies.
My question is about the test kit. Should I invest in a drop test kit for a pool this small or can I use strips?Is one from the pool store ok or should I order the one recommended on this site?
And should I buy the kit tomorrow or is it ok to order online and wait a few days? I just don't want to wait too long and have the water turn murkey.
I am unsure of what steps to take first....my 4 year old wants to swim in 2 days... can we add some chemicals now, swim and then test when the kit arrives and re-adjust?
Sorry, so many questions...I have never dealt with pool chemicals before and am totally confused.
If I can keep this small pool maintained, then DH has promised us an in-ground next year...this is a trial run for us so I want to do it right
